Last night, steaks, Brussels sprouts, baked sweet potato. The steak was large enough to save half for lunch.

I didn’t get pics of the food, but son #2’s girlfriend told us she wanted to cook for us a couple of days ago. She and he went shopping and made us a wonderful meal of beef enchiladas (with green Chile of course). Looks like another wedding is in our near future!

Tonight I assembled dinner. I didn't cook. Store bought BBQ chicken and Baguette. Chopped chicken breast and thigh with mayo, wholegrain mustard and spring onion. Spread the stuffing on the baguette. Called it quits.

Sure you'll forgive me. It was 47 degrees today - day 6 of summer 🥵

Before leaving for work yesterday morning I roasted three chicken breasts and made gravy.
Netted 2 1/2 cups of gravy.

Dinner was hot chicken sandwiches with double fried fries. 
 
I bought a whole strip loin on my way to work Friday morning. 
I cut it into five thick steaks, each big enough for two, one slightly smaller steak and a roast.
 
I wasn't hungry Friday night, after having a late lunch so I made Moe one of his favourite meals with the smaller steak.

Just now, heidih said:

@Ann_T I got spoiled when I had access to fresh green peppercorns which are completely different. Is there a brand you favor of the brined ones? Need to claw my way out of routine.

@heidih, I won't use the brined green peppercorns.  I don't like them.  I swear I can taste the brine.  I buy dried green peppercorns.   They were hard to find around here sometimes so I started to order them on line from The Silk Road Spice Merchant in Alberta, but I'm sure you can find them in your area.

Yesterday we butchered the deer we shot on Monday and I took the time to fish out smaller cuts that are kept on beef but usually hit the grinder in smaller deer.

 

From the top in the first pic are flat irons, the lump that is attached to top round that we usually trim out because it contains a blood vessel (I'm sure someone has the real name), tri-tip and picahna. McIntosh apple is to give an idea of their size.

 

Cooked them on a super hot 600 degree grill. Pictured from the top is picahna, top round lump, tri-tip and flat irons.

 

The plate clockwise from top right -- picahna, top round lumpish thing, tri-tip and flat irons.  Tri-tip had the best flavor but was the chewiest, the picahna was super tender and had great flavor so was the best overall, the top round lump (please someone give me a name for it) was good and the flat iron was strangely disappointing and not just because it got overcooked. Third time we have had them this year and I doubt I'll take the time to salvage them from the sausage pile in the future.

1 squash, 2 colours, 2 ways.

Mushrooms and kale cooked in cream. Crispy fried Speck. Dumplings: pureed cooked squash, eggs, lots of bread crumbs and some potato starch.

The rest, minus the 6 for this meal. The colour green comes from the skin and flesh close to it. Sweeter than the orange ones.

Squash I used: first one from right (green with ribs).

RBP stuffed with a mixture of ground chicken, kasha, onion, and mushrooms. Stripe of catsup on top of each before covering and baking. Comforting. Have a fair amount of the stuffing leftover to repurpose.

Dinner tonight was snacky stuff since the Patriots game was on at 4:25.  Surprisingly everyone came and ate at the table anyway, maybe because the Patriots were ahead by quite a bit.    I made homemade Chinese-American food since my nephew cannot eat takeout due to his allergies.  He was very excited.  Vegetable lo mein

Eggrolls (I stuffed them with scallions, cabbage, carrots, ginger, garlic, and a little bit of ground chicken), and crabless crab rangoons (the filling is just cream cheese, scallions, and sriracha)

And then...completely unrelated to the rest of the food, my husband very politely asked me to please make some buffalo chicken wings to have with the game.  So I did.  They were inhaled by my husband and nephew.  I made some soy sauce wings for my niece as well but she spirited them away before I could take a picture.  I dislike chicken wings myself, but there was plenty of other stuff to eat.  The leftover blue cheese sauce will go on a spinach salad later this week.

I adore Buffalo Wings, although I generally opt for ranch dressing rather than bleu cheese. @liamsaunt, yours look wonderful. So does the rest - as always - but you hit my special weakness.
